I’m cheating today…
These photos weren’t actually taken today, but I processed them today, so I’m going to count that as fair. I took them a couple of weeks ago, using some of my favorite models.
For me, processing means toning the photos to my liking. Fortunately, I work hard to make the lighting perfect before I take the photo, so I don’t have to mess with that part of it. But I want my photos to have a certain feeling to them, so toning them is usually the way that I achieve that.
I love photographing the human form and eliciting a strong emotion to the outcome. One of my models said that I have the ability to make her look both strong and dangerous and soft and feminine at the same time. I take that as a huge compliment, as that is what I am striving to do.
We are all vulnerable and strong, both qualities existing at the same time within us.
These are four of about 500 images.
